While several leading mining rig manufacturers have introduced more efficient bitcoin miners measured in joules per terahash (J/T), Auradine, based in California, has announced the debut of its Teraflux AT2880 and AI3680 bitcoin miners. These new models feature efficiency rates ranging from 15 to 16 J/T and a maximum output of 375 terahash per second (TH/s).
California’s Auradine Debuts High-Efficiency Teraflux Mining Series
In 2023, three prominent bitcoin (BTC) mining rig producers unveiled their latest offerings, showcasing their next-generation application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) devices. These machines boast efficiency ratings under 20 J/T. On November 14, 2023, Auradine, located in Santa Clara, California, introduced its advanced Teraflux series of bitcoin miners.
The lineup includes the air-cooled AT2880 model, which delivers 260 TH/s with an efficiency of 16 J/T. To give some context, the lowest efficiency rating announced earlier this year was by Bitmain’s S21 Hyd, capable of up to 335 TH/s at the same efficiency rating of 16 J/T. Auradine also released the AI3680, an immersion-cooled miner with a capacity of up to 375 TH/s.
The AI3680 immersion-cooled miner, part of this new Terraflux series, achieves an efficiency of 15 J/T, the lowest such rating currently available in the market. “After delivering our first generation of bitcoin miners, we are raising the bar again to help customers achieve the best economics and sustainability, even beyond the bitcoin halving in 2024,” Rajiv Khemani, the CEO and co-founder of Auradine said in a statement.
The Auradine CEO added:
We also offer bitcoin mining operators a compelling alternative to foreign ASICs, which is vital to the continued growth, security, and confidence of the North American blockchain economy.
In July 2023, Bitcoin.com News covered Auradine’s introduction of its Teraflux mining series, featuring models with capacities ranging from 185 to 270 TH/s. The company successfully secured $81 million during a Series A funding round conducted in mid-May 2023.
According to Tuesday’s announcement, Auradine has garnered support from key figures at US Bitcoin Corp. and Marathon Digital Holdings. On Tuesday, the firm concluded, “Teraflux AT2880 and AI3680 systems will begin shipping to customers in Q2 2024, with production volumes starting in Q3 2024.”
